Golden, we're about the same age. My rule has always been, if I can't bend over or sit down, my shorts are too short. I'm almost 5'3" and until this thread, never took note of inseams when it came to shorts (I only did that with pants). For the purpose of this thread, I went and measured my shorts. They have 4", 3.5", and 3" inseams. I think the 3" ones look just peachy, but as Silvercurls pointed out, they can ride up when I sit down and I hate that. I still wear them, but not in mixed company.

This model is wearing the longest pair of shorts I own, but they don't look like this on me.

I'm 5'3.5" and those shorts would probably hit me on the same part of the thigh.

Reminds me of my safari in Africa. Somebody forgot the corkscrew and for several days we had to live on nothing but food and water. - W. C. Fields
